Split Old Town

The city has some wonderful views. When the castle area was built, they dug out a partial basement area, in order to have the first floor sit slightly higher, giving Diocletian an unimpeded view of the sea.  The first one on the left with the bricks and the palm fronds is a picture of the basement area - though the ceiling is obviously missing.
Here are a few pictures of the winding streets. Some of them are very picturesque with  balconies and flowers and wrought iron.
The cathedral bell tower here is the dominant structure in this area and lends itself to pictures from many different angles. It is found towering over the various plazas and wondrous restaurants.
